4 Amazing Reasons to Visit Niagara Falls

When I stop and think about all my travels so far, I realise just how many places I haven’t seen yet! There is still so much I want to do, countries I want to visit and people I have to meet, and just one of those is Niagara Falls. I’m a sucker for scenery; I love taking pictures and creating memories that I can look back on, and this seems like a place that is just as spectacular as it is romantic. There are so many reasons I want to make this my next destination, but here are just a few… 1. Spectacular scenery with a spray I love going on tours around new cities, but the tours available at Niagara Falls take this to a whole new level! You get to take in the majestic sight of the falls, but from right beside it, your raincoat covered in the spray. I’m talking of course about the boats that take you right up to the base of the falls – this is a tour that’s crying out to me! But for those of you who don’t like getting wet, what about a helicopter tour instead? 2. Incredible hotel views guaranteed Most of the time when I travel, I stay in self-catering so that I really get to experience living there and blending in with local people. In this case though, I’d make an exception. The Marriott on the Falls Hotel is right on the edge of the falls, and you’d wake up every morning to breathtaking scenery. Imagine a sunset with the Falls in the foreground! If you don’t...

How to Make Labor Day Travel Seamless This Year

There’s so much to worry about traveling into Labor Day this year. Zika, terrorism, global warming — and avoiding news posts about Ryan Lochte and his public urination/vandalism scandal at a Rio gas station during the Olympics this year. Travel is still fun as ever when it goes according to plan and no serious problems are encountered. However, traveling circa 2016 has presented some concerns and things have certainly changed when it comes to all the help that technology can now offer us in terms of cost and time savings. Here are some tips to help you have a more stress free Labor Day travel excursion this year, no matter where you may find yourself traveling to. Leave nothing to chance while traveling this Labor day. With all the concerns over social unrest and outright terrorism to worry about when traveling abroad, consider registering with the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. Let them know your destination before your departure and they’ll keep you updated on the goings-on in the area you’ll be traveling to. They’ll also keep you updated about concerns during your trip, so you can make alternate arrangements and/or a quick exit before trouble erupts. Ensure your passport is valid for your destination. Experts, particularly those who work in customs worldwide, say that passports that don’t meet their country’s stay requirements are still the biggest reason for turning away citizens and not allowing them entry. Specifically, each country has different expiry requirements before they’ll even let you in for even a 5 day visit. Some will require at minimum that your visa needs to be good for...

50 Ways to Stretch your Travel Budget

The economy may not be performing well, but that should not kill your travel dreams. Here is 50 thrifty ways to stretch your travel budget.

What Is the Difference Between ‘Full Board’ and ‘All Inclusive’ When You Are Booking a Family Holiday?

If you are currently in the process of deciding where to go and what to book for your summer 2016 family holiday, then you are probably swimming in a sea of possibilities! Choosing just one destination is hard enough, and then picking a style of holiday, a resort, and what you’ll want to do when you’re there can make it one of those fun but agonising planning jobs! Of course, to make the right choice, it pays to understand all the different jargon around what different holidays actually offer, and this means knowing what to expect from different levels of board at a hotel or resort. Most people can gather from the term that self catering means you don’t have any meals or drinks provided, and that bed and breakfast means you only get breakfast, but one distinction that is less obvious is that between full board and all inclusive. Here, we explain where they are different, and help you decide which is right for you. You can click here for a great resource for finding family friendly resorts that offer all different types of board. What You Get with Full Board Typically, and where a given hotel or resort offers more it usually states this, full board means all of your meals can be taken at the hotel restaurant, included in the price of your stay. There will be set meal times and menus, and as long as you turn up at the right time, you’ll be fed! Outside of meal times, snacks and drinks probably will not be available included in your room price. You may also...

Travelling Light for Girls: How It’s Done

If you’re a girl planning to travel this summer, deciding what to pack can take longer than your holiday itself. With baggage check-in fees costing more than the flight itself in some cases, more and more girls are choosing to travel light with just cabin baggage alone, saving themselves money which can then be spent on doing more once they reach their destination. If you’re thinking of ditching the checked bags and taking only your hand luggage away with you, here’s how to plan your packing list to make the most out of your restricted space. Clothes If you’re going on a beach holiday, the clothes part of your packing should be easy. All you’ll really need to take is shorts, vest tops, dresses (see for some amazing must-have dresses this Summer) and of course, swim wear. If you are travelling to a colder climate, it can be a bit trickier to pack your case without going over your weight limit. Layering is the best idea as you can take off or put on layers of clothing as needed depending on the temperature, so rather than taking woollen sweaters, take layers of thinner clothing instead which will weigh less and fold smaller, allowing you to take more in your bag. Shoes Shoes can be the biggest pain to pack when you’re travelling with just cabin luggage. Flip-flops and sandals can easily fit into the bottom of your case, but if you want to take some heavier shoes it can become a bit of a problem. Most cabin cases will have two sections, one for clothes and one for...
